Why Worry?

I wonder how it will go?

Will it be scary?

Will I be able to keep up?

Will a zombie come out of the closet and attack me?


As humans, it's one the traits we're best at. 

We worry about everything. 

We worry about our kids, about how things are going to go, about how we're going to do it, and we even worry about worrying. 

At best, worrying is distracting, at worst, it's downright destructive. 

I constantly try to be mindful that worrying gets me nowhere. 

In fact, worrying will often bring on the very thing we're worried about. 

Worrying, I believe, is like driving our energy in reverse-it takes all of what we could put into attaining positive things and drives us down into negative thoughts instead. 

Simply, worrying never works. 

Worrying about the rest of the day is like walking down the street, dropping dollar bills out of a big stack in your hand, and then later, when you arrive at your destination, being suddenly shocked that you have no cash. 

Worrying about things you can't control, though a habit that's often hard to break, doesn't help. 

My first ever client, now well into her 90's, always use to tell me...

"Doug, if it's meant to be, it will be."

Simple, yet so true. 

So, how do you get past worrying?

Self-awareness and action. 

You first need to catch yourself that you're worrying, be aware that it's not productive to worry, and instead, turn it into action. 

Simple, yes.



But with constant mindfulness, awareness, and practice you can get better at it. 

So, whether you're worried about your health and fitness, or you're worried about how you're going to get through the day, turn that worrying into action. 

1% Better.
